"Shut Me Up" as written by and Joseph Lee Henry....
The bass
The rock
The mic
The treble

I like my coffee black
Just like my metal
With the bass
The rock

The mic
The treble
I like my coffee black
Just like my metal

I can't wait for you to fuck me up
In a minute - minute
In a fuckin' minute
I can't wait for you to fuck me up

In a minute - minute
In a second

I can't wait for you to shut me up
And make me hip like badass
I can't wait for you to shut me up
Shut it up

I can't wait for you to shut me up
And make me hip like badass
I can't wait for you to shut me up
Shut it up

The bass
The rock
The mic
The treble

I like my coffee black
Just like my metal
With the bass
The rock

The mic
The treble
I like my coffee black
Just like my metal

I can't wait for you to fuck me up
In a minute - minute
In a fuckin' minute
I can't wait for you to fuck me up

In a minute - minute
In a second

I can't wait for you to shut me up
And make me hip like badass
I can't wait for you to shut me up
Shut it up

I can't wait for you to shut me up
And make me hip like badass
I can't wait for you to shut me up
Shut it up

I don't buy your body right now - right now
I'm almost over my body right now - now
I'm on my way to the party right now - right now
I don't buy your body right now - right now

I'm almost over my body right now - now
I'm on my way to the party right now - right now
Because the (bass? break?), the (bass? the break?)

I can't wait for you to shut me up
And make me hip like badass
I can't wait for you to shut me up
Shut it up

I can't wait for you to shut me up
And make me hip like badass
I can't wait for you to shut me up
Shut it up

    General CommentHmm..this makes me think about the quote on the back of their second album Frankenstein Girls Will Seem Strangely Sexy

    "It's the Suppression of the word that gives it the power, the violence, the viciousness" - Lenny Bruce

    This song is about them being censored, Jimmy Urine is saying bring on the censorship because it will only make their songs more powerful and popular because when they "shut him up" it'll make him look like a rebel and he'll be "hip like badass.

    General CommentI think it's about censorship and selling out basically, he's saying he can't wait til producers shut him up and write the words for him so that he can sound cool(sarcastically of course)

    General CommentI, myself, doubt this song has much sexual meaning. More or less it's about censorship and the video even reinforced that. With the boy going crazy and the beginning, they're playing on what most 'logical' people think. That if you listen to rock music, you will go crazy and hurt/kill others. Isn't that what has happened to Marilyn Manson and Judas Priest? Blamed for things other kids did, just because of their music. In a way, I think that's what they mean by this whole thing. They're being censored and I think it probably pissed the band off, how would you feel if people tried to change something you put all your time in? Tried to change you into another clone. I don't see where a sexual innuendo would come into play, maybe the whip? But other than that, it seems like he's challenging the industry to change the band and the music.

    General CommentGood lord, is there ANY Mindless Self Indulgence song that someone will not attribute to sex?

    Personally, I always thought the song was a statement to people who didn't like their shit and told them they're a bunch of faggots (Like in "F" from their preceding album). It's intended to call them out on their threats and ask them to follow through, knowing that they're just insecure pricks in reality.

    At least that's the impression I get. Not a lot to this song lyrically, so it's very open to interpretation.

    My Interpretation"The bass The rock The mic The Treble. I like my coffee black just like my metal." I think this is saying that he really likes the show business, the art of performance and such...
    "I can't wait for you to knock me up" 'knocked up' is typically a negative slang, so far saying that he loves what he does, but the business involves a lot of screwing him over, but he accepts it. "I can't wait" saying a sort of "bring it on bitches" "I can't wait for you to shut me up.... I can't wait for you to fuck me up." I know ur gonna try to censor me, but not only am I gonna keep doing what I want, I dare you to challenge me. I'm gonna do what I want because I want to :) good message.

    General Commenti don't think its about sex. taken literally, "fuck me up" is different than "fuck me," so by johnny c's logic it doesn't add up.
    of course thats just in my opinion.
    i think its basically a guy who likes metal who is angry. he's perfectly aware that everyone else is angry at him as well and possibly want to harm him "fuck me up/shut me up." he knows they all hate him and there's kinda a point where your self-pity turns and you just gotta step up and take what you'll get.
